I mailed one 3/2 and the check posted 3/10, but times have changed?  I may pick up a license in 8 months and resubmit it to clear in a day, because this whole thing has gotten out of hand.  There is no logical reason form 3's clear in a day or two and form 4's are pushing a year?  

 

Well, with an eForm 3, there is no background check. All they have to do is make sure both licenses are valid and the SOT is paid and they can approve. Also, there is no time wasted mailing something to Oregon and then shipping it ot West Virginia. Beware though, if you get and FFL and SOT, you may have more of a propensity to impulse buy.

Form 3s are for trusted people
Form 4s are for unworthy people

I have to submit a paper Form 1 to reactivate a DEWAT machine gun as it cant be done online and it will be a 6-8 month wait.....yet the gun was just transferred to me on a Form 5! Makes no sense at all

It's a privilege that costs $500 per year. Seems cheap to me, especially since it gets paid for through profits.

Well this is sort of in the Pandemic time frame...I just got the stamp (form 4 ) on a gun that had the check cashed on 11-22....I also bought another gun,check cashed on 10-7 and still  pending? One gun came out of Michigan and the other (10-7) Florida?

Looking at NFA Tracker just now there are F4s approved that were pending Dec/Jan. Taking 70-80 days now. Is this a fluke or a new normal?

That would be great, if they're getting them done that fast.  I mailed my form 4 application on Friday, June 12; it arrived Monday, June 15; and the fee transaction showed up on my credit card account yesterday.

I received my Stamp and form on June 6 (D-day). Was a fitting day to pick up my M1 Thompson.

Also got a FOIA package in May so someone is definitely still working.
